Facilities Management

Facilities Management

The job of the facilities manager has become increasingly complex in recent years. Facilities managers not only ensure that the resources of a building are used efficiently and effectively in terms of day-to-day operations, but deal with a host of issues – from security, infrastructure, and sustainability to legal requirements, and beyond.

Baruch’s courses in Facilities Management provide a comprehensive understanding of the wide range of responsibilities undertaken by the facilities managers of today – from Operations and Maintenance to Facility Finance , Codes, Health, and Safety, and more.

Baruch College, located in the heart of New York City, has an unparalleled reputation as a leader in the Real Estate industry. We remain on the cutting edge, continually updating and expanding our hands-on, industry-driven curriculum.
